QUOTE: Zezi Ifore seems to have done it all before becoming an E4 Music presenter extraordinaire. After an eventful first year studying French and Italian at Oxford University - running for president of the Oxford Union, taking up rowing and discovering a penchant for pikelets among other things, she left to see what the big wide world had to offer her. Quite a lot actually, she's already managed to fit in styling the likes of Lupe Fiasco and Dizzee Rascal, editing cult fashion magazine Super Super, becoming an international DJ and starting a Myspace revolution without even realising it - all before her 23rd birthday.
And now here she is: appearing on an E4 tuned TV screen near you, interviewing artists, bigging up her favourite new acts and genuinely causing as much trouble as humanly possible.
To add to her ‘I’m dead cool me’ credentials, whilst partying, making songs up about biscuits and dancing to Cher, Zezi works in A&R for a massive music publisher. She’s also one half of DJ duo ‘Zapotecsoundsystem’ with our very own Nick Grimshaw. Expect them to pop up at wedding receptions and bar mitzvahs up and down the land; as well as the big hair and big mouths, they’ll be the ones getting on down to Mariah's Greatest Hits.
So what Zezi doesn't know about music probably isn't worth knowing (or maybe it is, just to annoy her). And that, plus her ridiculous obsession with Donatella Versace, gold and treggings (a trouser-legging hybrid) are why we think she's great. UNQUOTE.
